The Green Rose

An unusual rose grows in my garden. Not quite beautiful but somehow alluring this petal-less rose forms continuous "flowers" of bronze tinged green sepals. First observed in gardens more than 200 years ago this garden conversation piece is propagated with cuttings by rose enthusiasts around the world,  but can be difficult to find for the home garden. After a lengthy internet search I tracked mine down at The Antique Rose Emporium -- a treasure trove of old roses and rose information.
